"Cool, intellectual, and occasionally transgressive, Helmut Lang defined luxe minimalism in the nineties (along with Jil Sander, Prada, and Calvin Klein)… His suits, and later his phenomenally popular jeans, became a uniform for power brokers in creative industries like film, art, advertising, and fashion... austere lines, dark colors, beautiful materials (often mixed in unexpected but never garish ways, like stretch elastic with fine wool) and strict tailoring… and at one point he was so influential that his decision to show his collection in New York before the Paris and Milan shows permanently altered the runway fashion calendar."

"Today, Lang is considered one of the pace-makers of fashion design. Lang has been labeled a deconstructionist, a futurist, and a minimalist, always attributed with fashion trends that soon after will be adopted by the fashion bcommunity… He uses uncommon materials and cuttings for clothes that are not loud in appearence, but unavoidable disturbing in nature… Unlike his Italian colleagues, Lang undresses women with his clothes not with a voluptuous gesture, he does so with clinical coolness...Helmut Lang pursues a very restrictive distribution policy for his ready-to-wear collection. There are only three exclusive Helmut Lang boutiques right now: in Vienna, Austria (operated together with a division of the Austrian lingerie giant Palmers), in Munich,Germany, and in Milan, Italy."
